You should ask the staff through an email or something before you go through the trouble of showing up with that unicycle and potentially not being allowed inside and stuck with it on con day.

Outside food is allowed, people bring in snacks all the time. (Or if it's not people easily sneak it in since it isn't like Otakon does bag checks. ... Yet. That might become a thing one of these days.) But they are much more likely to let you in with food if you are clean about it than a unicycle, I can almost 100% guarantee they will not let you ride that in the building.
oh, thanks for the info!, i will ask the staff about the unicycle but i might be sad if the unicycle doesn't work out..

It's cool. But yeah please look over the prop/weapon rules before you bring big things. My first con I made Sango's Boomerang Bone from Inuyasha and was told at the door it was too big and I couldn't go in with it. So I know it can really suck to show up and be told no and it is much better to plan and know in advanced what you can and cannot bring.

Friday, Saturday, and maybe Sunday
It will probably after the homestuck photoshoot
also, i am taking suggestions so if anyone wants a specific time, i will probably be able to work out their ideas (including yours )
(best probability is still around 5:00 - 7:00, and if theres another meet like pajamastuck, we will go as a group)

they (otakon) really should allow that, i see many cosplayers at different cons that bring things like fake swords, fake weapons etc. that aren't too huge but still pretty big (like medium)(sorry for late reply, i was in Florida for like 4 nights without any electronics ((school policy)))

Should I create a page on tumblr or facebook for this or mention this on DCstuck or MDstuck??
And the meetup will take place outside (so you can bring whatever you want! )
